Keep up with the latest technology news on the FOX Business Technology Facebook page.

The TouchPad made its debut on July 1 as a Wi-Fi only device with a 1.2GHz processor.

In our review we said the device was just good and that its software needed a shot of adrenaline." However, AT&Ts upcoming version will sport a faster 1.5GHz processor, the aforementioned HSPA+ support and HPs latest webOS 3.0.2 software.

Amazon is currently listing the TouchPad 4G for $699.99, which means youll be paying a big premium for 4G, but thats also probably before any AT&Ts subsidies.
